Porsche has announced plans to introduce the 911 Targa at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The company declined to release pictures but said the model draws inspiration from the original 1965 911 Targa and has a "distinctive Targa bar, a movable center roof section and a wrap-around rear window." We can also expect a number of "innovative technical solutions that make it a true modern classic."

Engine options will likely carryover from the standard model so expect choices to include a 3.4-liter six-cylinder with 350 HP (257 kW) and 390 Nm (288 lb-ft) of torque as well as 3.8-liter six-cylinder with 400 HP (294 kW) and 440 Nm (324 lb-ft) of torque.

The 911 Targa will be unveiled on January 13th, so stay tuned for full details.
